S.T.A.L.A.K.E.R. 2 Cancellation Confirmed


Game Informer has finally nailed down the rumors of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2's demise and the closing of the GSC Game World.

Quote:
"We did not reach agreement with the rights owner regarding the use of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. brand, that’s why we made the decision to move forward as an independent studio with a new project. That day became our starting point for Vostok Games," the team said on its official website.
Before you go throwing yourself into the nearest gravity anomaly, there is still light at the end of this dark bleak tunnel.

Quote:
Vostok is working on a free-to-play, massively multiplayer online first-person shooter called Survarium (working title).

"The concept of Survarium is a next evolution step for the idea of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. we’ve been working on for the last ten years, said project lead Ruslan Didenko. "Survarium will go way further forcing mankind to fight for survival not only within the closed area of Chernobyl zone, but also far beyond."

Survarium is set for release sometime near the end 2013 for PC. Posted above is the game's first concept artwork.

Pour one for your stalker homies tonight.

Well, seems that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is dead. Not that surprising, considering that the rumors have been floating around for some time.

Lost interest after that.

Yes it has always been S.T.A.L.A.K.E.R to me and a select few, apparently.

Worst gaming news in a long time. And a multiplayer game as a replacement? Not interested at all.

There is already a STALKER MMO, but it's only in Russian. http://stalker-online.co/

It's the last time anyone will get to use it so it was done justice. Besides the picture should easily induce more groans than the meme once you figure out which kind of stalker it is.

I was wondering about the pic, it looks like nothing I know though (Hopefully due to my Englishness and not ignorance).
